I flew Joe's 74" Edge at the Tenn. Huckfest in October, and it does have plenty of power and top end speed. However, he sets his TX timer for 4 minutes due to his aggressive use of throttle and to allow for a bit of conservative reserve. After my flight he measured the pack and said I could get by with 5 minute flight times. I was doing mostly low throttle rollers, a Split-S or two, and just easing the plane around a bit to get the feel of it. Flies really nice so I bought one and will have it ready to go by February.
But for my 74" Edge, I'm really wanting a bit longer flight times so I'm going 10S with a pair of 5S 4000mAh packs to start with, and the Hacker A60-7S (215kv) with a Xoar 20x10. That should give a good 7:00 to 7:30 minute flight times (motor calc.) doing a mix of 3D and precision at my, "cough", more relaxed 3D flying style
